A Welcome from the Program Director:

​Dear Family Medicine Resident:

Welcome to the ArnotHealth Family Medicine Residency Program! Your hard work has paid off, and you now have letters after your name. Congrats! Now the real work begins. Our goal is to equip you to take excellent care of all the patients you encounter throughout your career in medicine. As your Program Director, it is my hope that the program inspires you to be just a little bit better every day than you were the day before, not only during your tenure here, but for the rest of your life. And not just in medicine – this will hopefully carry over into all areas of your life.
Family Medicine is a rewarding specialty. You will be the “first line of defense” for patients entering the medical system. You will get to take care of entire families, and get to know all of them, along with all the relationships, quirks, etc. 

You will also be the “gatekeeper,” keeping track of all the data coming in from other providers, and help your patients and their families keep it all straight. You will become their friend, counselor, advisor and peer. This is a great privilege and one I hope you’ll embrace as you embark on your career.

Residency isn’t easy. You will work hard, and it can be taxing, both physically and emotionally. There will be times when you will be discouraged and wondering if you did, indeed, make the right choice. The faculty and I will be here for you to help you through it. Just ask us. When you finish, I think you’ll find it was worth the sweat, tears and effort. So – let’s get started, and learn and grow together…

- Timothy Baxter, M.D., FAAFP
